8x5 ink line and wash (watercolor) on lined office paper, about 1 hour...doesn't look much like him but I'm not a portrait artist! :lol:
7.5x5 ink (Micron 03 pen) on Moleskine sketchbook, about 15 minutes
Same but with watercolor added, about 45 minutes

Love the cigar guy in particular. By the way I want your statue (the real one) in the worst way -- she (and your painting of her) are so unique!

Kay, I think I saw the lady bust blushed...you brought her alive with some attractive color; the cigar guy is also super...I love that light casted across his face.

I must commend you on your ears! I hate drawing or painting ears. The 3 ears u have done here are FANTASTIC! And who says you aren't a portrait artist? YOU? ya, well, I think you can paint any old thing you want to Kay!! How was the show today?

Thanks everyone! Not easy for me to do people or ears!
Our little art show had 70 entries yesterday and a pencil graphics won best of show (an out of town artist). Hardly ever see any pencil work win so I was thrilled for that artist.

These are both excellent! The cigar man has so much character. The lady's colors are so clean.

I love them both, but the character that shines throught in the cigar man makes it my favourite.
I have yet to see you do anything that I did not think was fabulous.
